Mendix Customer MassHousing to Speak at NCSHA Housing Conference
BOSTON – October 15, 2014 – Mendix, the enterprise app platform as a service (aPaaS) company, today announced that the company will exhibit and Mendix customer MassHousing will speak at the National Council of State Housing Agencies (NCSHA) 2014 Annual Conference & Showplace event. The conference will be held in Boston on Oct. 18-21 at the Sheraton Boston Hotel.
MassHousing CIO Charles Schiappa will present in a session called “Best of HFAs: Information Technology” on Monday, Oct. 20, at 10:45 a.m. The session will discuss ways MassHousing has used technology to drive improvements in its operations and processes. Schiappa will share how the agency leveraged the Mendix App Platform to deliver a single application to streamline the permitting process for Chapter 40B, the state’s affordable housing law. Using Mendix, MassHousing was able to produce the app in 12 weeks, shrinking a development project estimated to take up to 18 months using conventional coding methods.
Mendix will exhibit at the conference at Booth #36. The company will showcase ways the high-productivity Mendix App Platform can help housing finance authorities and other government agencies keep pace with growing business demand and deliver valued information solutions through a more iterative, collaborative approach.
“Housing finance authorities with limited resources are under more pressure than ever to provide programs and services to meet affordable housing needs,” said Gottfried Sehringer, vice president of marketing for Mendix. “We look forward to hearing their business challenges at the NCSHA conference and exploring ways Mendix technology can help them create apps to accelerate their processes and better serve their constituents.”
